PASSION FOR PATTERNS
Patterns for the Senses
Patterns in Nature appear like delicious candy to my senses – colors, contrasts, textures, blends, shapes, aromas, tastes, and sounds – make my mouth water and my mind race to obsession, studying the patterns.
Like a child waiting impatiently for yummy “NUM-NUM” cookies to be taken from the oven, patterns appear in everyday things and events – if one is looking for them. I actively seek these patterns for my photo collections from Nature. And behold, there are other patterns – real but imagined, too small to see, mathematical – worth being sought. These others are sweetest; few see them.
All patterns take time to research and study; there is so little time. Actively seeking and studying patterns, I created hundreds of categorized collection folders of my photos, sketches, and studies. An individual folder’s collection may contain hundreds of related pattern photos and sketches. Collection folders include such categories as doors, urban icons, parametric growth, geometric packing, kinetics, hand tools, funicularity, equilibrium…and so forth.
This website organizes my photo collection categories into relatable, bite-sized chunks of blogged, organized material. I want to share images, their stories, and researched information in my collection’s PATTERNS with others who are interested.
